War Cabinet Officer’s management interface design is ready. The purpose of this UI is to provide information about your officer’s Combat stats, Special Traits, Experience and Rewards. From here you would be able to sort and manage officers in easy and intuitive way with single click. This way you could choose best commanders for various units and missions for best results.


The interface has three main parts: The first one is located on the top. It gives you the information about the commander of the selected unit with his stats, experience, rewards and special abilities. It also shows the name and the rank of the current commanding officer.
The second one, located on the left side of the screen provides information about highlighted officer from the pool. Looking at the stats and skills you can decide what type of units would benefit most of his command. There would be five major types of land units: Infantry, Mechanized, Artillery, Armored and Anti-Air battalions. Same design will be used for Air Force, but it will utilize different categories and special abilities. Clicking on the awards icons with reveal more details what kind of medals he has and how they were earned.
The third one is located on the right side of the screen and shows the officers pool. This is the place where you can oversee overall officer’s availability, skills, decorations and seniority of the commanders.
We believe that War Cabinet interface design is created to be distinctive and user friendly in order to provide flawless game experience.
All your comments and further recommendation on that you are more than welcome.

Crocodile is coming.. go hide your vehicles

Here it is: The flying beast Mi-24 Hind. At first look you understand that the nickname “flying tank” is well deserved.






Despite it is introduced in service since 70s, even today Hind is considered dangerous foe and form the backbone of many countries’ helicopter force.This is how we see it in the War Cabinet Game. What do you think? Share your thoughts and comments.

War Cabinet story continues 23 Days Later…
Part 3: Shadows from the past
There are numerous reports of intensifying firefights in Marutia. Most of the country is the hands of the armed insurgent groups. There is no electricity and serious food shortage in all major cities. Marutia’s government is on the edge of collapse. Two major rebel movements started to fight each other clearly supported by the neighboring countries. In this situation all diplomatic efforts to reduce the escalation of violence have failed.

Supply and logistics have been playing important role in every war since ancient times.

As a general rule if you want to win a war there should be couple of things present. One of them is strong supply and logistics. This involves huge volume of manpower, equipment, fuel, food infrastructure consideration and serious planning. Without it even mightiest army is becoming helpless mass of people and equipment.

They all had to be moved usually between great distances from the homeland into the campaigning theaters. The fighting front is where the links in the supply chains end.

In the end it doesn’t matter if it is a real war or just a strategy war game the rules remain the same. That is why we believe that any serious war strategy game should consider including this key element. We will.


In this regard we would like to share with you one piece of equipment suit for the task. This is the Ural fuel tanker 375D, which can be quickly and accurately allocated to supply the battle front. The Ural-375D is a general purpose 4.5 ton 6x6 truck, produced at the Ural Automotive Plant in the Russian SFSR since 1961. The ZIL-157 was the standard Soviet truck until it was replaced by the Ural-375D, which became the standard Soviet truck in 1979. The Ural-375D was soon replaced by the Ural-4320. The Soviets also found the trucks an ideal platform for the BM-21 Grad rocket launcher. Other modes for the Ural-375D included troop carrier, supply carrier, etc.

So please take a close look at it and tell us what you think.

M113 APC – New combat vehicle added to the House of Orange

Dear friends,
In order to win battles the modern battlefield commanders would need highly mobile manpower, which can turn the tide in the most crucial situations. Armor protected vehicles are preferred choice to do this while operating near the enemy.


That is why we added M113 – Armored Personnel Carrier to the War Cabinet military equipment to serve into the House of Orange forces. With this new addition to game’s Military Park we are confident that your soldiers will yield the benefits of the mechanized warfare.

More about M113 - APC can be found here:http://www.warcabinet.net/m113-apc-new-com...range/#more-572
Please share your thoughts and opinion.

Economy system within strategy war games

Guys,

We plan to implement economy system into the game. By doing this we want to achieve an additional depth of the gameplay. However, in order to do the right balance we need your valuable input here.

First of all do you enjoy economic aspect of the strategy games or you prefer pure combat only gameplay?

If there is a game economy in place it should be:

1. As simple as possible with very few type of resources with minimum amount of user management.
2. Moderately detailed economy system part of the core game mechanics. This could include several resources to be generated, monitored and used for various activities. This would mean roughly up to 20% of the gameplay might be related to economic and resource dependent activities like: purchasing of equipment, upgrades, promotions, personnel recruitment, repair of facilities, etc.
3.Well developed war economy model which will strongly influence game campaign and rules. This would required better planning of your spending and more economy related decisions and events. Without proper economy management your chance to gain victory will be vastly reduced. Of course at times it would require more micromanagement.

Any other thoughts and questions on this topic are mostly welcome.

What's the most enjoyable part of a game to you?

Guys,

When you start playing a new game or simply replay an old one what's the most enjoyable part of the game to you?

Is it the beginning when you explore a new world and learn how to play or it is the the mid-game, when you have the chance to expand your powers and getting deep into the story or you are a fan of the final stages of the game.

How much you like to learn new things and use new functions, try new characteristics while gaming or on the contrary you prefer to stick to familiar things and keep on playing?
